Reyes Named President of Materials Management for Alcoa (posted 9/15/09)

Prior to this appointment, Reyes had been vice president of Marketing for Alcoa World Alumina and Alcoa Primary Products.

Alcoa recently announced that Timothy D. Reyes has been appointed president of Alcoa Materials Management, reporting to Alcoa Vice President Kevin Anton. Reyes had been vice president of Marketing for Alcoa World Alumina and Alcoa Primary Products. Alcoa Materials Management is responsible for commercial activities related to primary metal, alumina and bauxite within Alcoa’s Global Primary Products business, as well as commodity price risk management and transportation for Alcoa Inc.

“Tim is no stranger to metal trading activities,” said Anton. “He brings a wealth of market experience to this assignment, having spent the majority of his professional career serving in various trading positions, including serving as senior vice president of Alcoa Materials Management.”

Reyes joined Alcoa in 1999 and has held a series of senior metal management positions, including director of Alcoa Europe’s metal management group, based in Lausanne, Switzerland; and vice president of Alcoa Materials Management, responsible for metal price risk management. He progressed to senior vice president of the Alcoa business with key responsibilities including primary metal and scrap purchasing, scrap sales and tolling, and supply chain management and logistics. In early 2009, he became vice president of Marketing for Alcoa World Alumina, responsible for various commercial organizations within the Alcoa World Alumina and Alcoa Primary Products businesses, covering smelter and chemical grade aluminas, bauxite, bulk freight and specialty powders.

Prior to joining Alcoa, Reyes held trading positions with F&S International, a subsidiary of STINNES/VEBA (now EON), and co-founded the Tricor Group, based in New York City. He graduated from Boston College in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in finance.
